Project Collaboration Initiatives:

  • eHealth TC, on behalf of ComSoc, is participating in IEEE Life science Initiative(LSI) ( whose team members includes representatives from 12 IEEE societies. Volunteers are needed for LSI participation.

Call For Papers initiatives:

  • International Journal on E-Health and Medical Communications (IJEHMC) 
    • IJEHMC focuses on theories, systems, methods, algorithms, and applications in ehealth, biomedicine and medical communicatons. IJEHMC publishes application papers, survey and tutorial papers, case studies, and short research notes reflecting global eheath technologies and medical communication contributing to the state-f-art advances in the fields.

  • Special Issue on “Revolutionizing mHealth through next generation communication technologies” EURASIP Journal on Wireless Communications and Networking (Dec. 31, 2015) – closed
    • EURASIP Journal on Wireless Communications and Networking (EURASIP JWCN) is an open access journal, aiming is to bring together science and applications of wireless communications and networking technologies with emphasis on signal processing techniques and tools. This special issue aims to collect original papers with innovative solutions in the domain of mHealth, as well as comprehensive overviews in this field, highlighting the different communication and networking aspects of an IoT-based ecosystem, proposing innovative technologies and architectures and identifying the design challenges to ensure efficient end-to-end healthcare solutions. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
      – Channel modelling and propagation issues for WBANs
      – Power management and energy harvesting-aware schemes
      – Low-power protocols and Energy Neutral Operation
      – Architectures and systems for wireless wearable communications
      – Interference management in WBANs and coexistence with other technologies
      – Cooperative schemes for multihop WBAN communications
      – Compressed sensing techniques for signal telemonitoring
      – Digital and analog network coding techniques for WBANs
      – End-to-end connectivity and QoS provisioning
      – Security and privacy issues
      – Cloud/Fog-based solutions for resource allocation, processing, data storage, etc.
      – Innovative architectures for mHealth (SDN-enabled infrastuctures, M2M systems, etc.)
      – IoT systems and applications for mHealth
      – Experimental testbeds, platforms and pilot studies for mHealth applications
      – Standardization activities in the mHealth domain
      – Big data analytics and challenges
